Sure you have your own phrase or phrases.
A quote of your own that you have used in special moments about your computer work.

Why not put here for others ? Sure I can learn.

Have you created a computer joke ? Anybody can enjoy a hilarious situation or a messing one !!!!!  ;D

Best Regards

My second one.

If you're not a programmer and need programs be sure to be near good programmers (Contro's philosophy)
